I have 10 international (English-speaking) students coming to Bologna in late May, and I have given them a task to learn how to look a real Italian meal after a week of exploring Emilia-Romagna.
We will do a few cooking classes, and hopefully we will rent an apartment with a big kitchen to learn in...but I am hoping to introduce them to many locals in Bologna who can help them understand why food is so important to Italians and especially to this region.
I guess I'm looking for:
- locals who love to cook
- cooking school recommendations
- unique restaurant and market recommendations
- fun and interesting people who like meeting new people!
I teach at a traveling high school, so our idea of education is all about experience and connecting to people we meet along the way.

Hi Lindsay! I was born and currently live in Bologna and I love cooking, both local and international food. My international friends are very passionate about my "bolognese sauce" (even if we don't call it that way :)) I will be around in may so... let's keep in touch!

I will visit Bologna over Easter and was wondering if the shops are open and which is the best one to buy some Italian snacks / spreads /sweets which I can bring home.
I know that Bologna is Italians food capital, but what is a must-eat and must-bring-home in your opinion?

You should definitely visit the shop of Paolo Atti, located in Via Caprarie 7. There you can buy salty and sweet local specialities, all of which won't disappoint you. I recommend you to buy a small mortadella or, even better, a "salame rosa", which are both a kind of cured ham. Also, try their "colomba", a sweet cake made only for Easter. The rice cake is also a good choice, available all-year round.
Another option is to visit the "Mercato delle Erbe", located in via Ugo Bassi 23. There you can find a mosaic of small shops selling all sort of food. There is also an area selling street food and local beers... just amazing.
Well... I ended up hungry :D

Hey everyone, I have another questions.
I would like to stay on a farm in the Emilia Romagna Region (accessible from the airport in Bologna) for two nights in mid-September.
I hope to learn a little about agriculture and local cuisine - for ex. making cheese, growing vegetables, processing milk, taking care of the animals etc.) And of course, eating really great food from ingredients on the farm.
Does anyone know of a place or have any leads?

Does anyone know good restaurants in Bologna where you can eat with allergies (milkproducts/sugar) and vegetarian?

These are the one I know:
Centro natura: It's a self-service restaurant by very good in my opinion. http://www.centronatura.it/benessere-naturale/ristorante/
Clorofilla: a usual restaurant, it's good but they do not change that much the menù: https://www.tripadvisor.it/Restaurant_Review-g187801-d1402946-Reviews-Clorofilla-Bologna_Province_of_Bologna_Emilia_Romagna.html
Punto macrobiotico: it's an association rather than a restaurant as well. It's more strict than usual vegan and they do not use sugar. https://www.tripadvisor.it/Restaurant_Review-g187801-d3174252-Reviews-Un_punto_macrobiotico-Bologna_Province_of_Bologna_Emilia_Romagna.html
Hopefully it helps

There's also Canapè in Via Sant'Isaia, 57. This is a vegan restaurant especially great for lunch.
Another is Café de la Paix in Via Collegio di Spagna, 5. Nice to have a coffee and a small snack.
En laat het me maar weten als je nog iemand zoekt om mee koffie te drinken ;).
